12/21/2005: Christmas EVIL...
Now WHO would be so Cruel and Horrible [and Stupid] to cause the death of a baby Penguin by stealing it from a zoo?
Yahoo News is reporting this:
"A baby penguin thought to have been snatched from a zoo as a quirky festive gift is unlikely to survive until Christmas Day, his keeper warned Tuesday.
Toga, a three-month old jackass penguin, was stolen from Amazon World on the Isle of Wight in southern England on Saturday.
Zoo manager Kath Bright said the bird, who was taken from a compound where he lived with his parents and four other penguins, would probably die of malnutrition if not urgently returned.
"Toga is very, very vulnerable. The penguin is still being fed by his parents and we don't believe it could survive more than five days," she told The Associated Press.
"The bird has already been missing for around three days and is likely to be severely dehydrated. If he isn't returned before Thursday he is likely to become so ill that even intensive care treatment won't save him."
Fooey on the Lacking-In-Christmas-Spirit Thief. Return the penguin before it dies at your hand - you evil and clumsy OAF.
